Tips For Writing Articles imageWhile learning the tips for writing articles can be a tremendous tool to promote your business, many of us dread the very act of writing an article!

Not only that, but if we are going to spend the time to write an article, we want it to get read, right?

There is nothing more frustrating than to conduct all of your research, and take the time to write and publish a good quality article, only to receive a few views, if any at all.

If we are going to spend the time to write an article, lets increase our chances for that article to accomplish what it was created for…Drive Traffic!  Here are some tips for writing articles

Writing Articles – Tips 1 & 2

Writing Articles image1. Use short paragraphs.

When a paragraph goes on and on, you will quickly lose the attention of your reader.  If you lose your readers interest, they will quickly discard your article, and search for one that is easier to look at and more enjoyable to read.  Remember, paragraphs can be a single sentence, sometimes even a single word!

2. Start using numbers or bullets.

As you are stressing each point in your article, numbers and bullets can quickly make each point easy to digest and remember.  Format your numbers and bullets to where your article will not look like a single block of square paragraphs.

Tips 3 & 4

3. Start using sub-headings to divide your paragraphs.

This will allow you to easily break each point into sections.  This gives the reader the ability to easily move from one point to another, keeping their attention.  It provides direction as to where your article is heading.

4. Create a title or header that will immediately grab the attention of the reader.

Enticing the curiosity of the reader is half the battle of getting that person to read your article in its entirety.  Ask questions that utilize keywords that people are searching for.  Create titles that describe your articles content, but are short and sweet at the same time.

The final tip

5. Make the experience of reading your article pleasurable and enjoyable to keep them interested from start to finish.

If your reader clicks away from your article before they are finished reading, your article has not done its job.  Use descriptions and metaphors to drive your point.  Just don’t over do it!  Using examples and metaphors makes it easy for the reader to imagine what you are talking about.

If you begin utilizing these 5 tips for writing articles, your article marketing experience will be much more enjoyable, and your articles will begin working that much harder for you and your business.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
